Microwave Pumpkin Seed Brittle

1 cup salted hulled green pumpkin seeds
½ teaspoon cinnamon  
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/8 tsp. salt
1 tsp. butter
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla

In a 1 ½  quart microwave safe dish stir together sugar, syrup, cinnamon, salt and pumpkin seeds. Microwave on high 4 minutes. Stir well. Microwave 4 minutes more. Stir in butter and vanilla, microwave for 2 minutes longer.

Add baking soda and stir until light and foamy. Immediately pour onto a Silpat or spray a cookie sheet with oil.  I love a Silpat for this.  Using an oiled spatula, spread the mixture out as thin as possible. Let it sit to cool and break into smaller pieces.

You can store it in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.  You may substitute any type of nut in this recipe.  At Christmas try cashews.  Yum!

Be happy and have a sweet day.  May God bless you and yours.
